If DVD Burning Xpress cannot recognize your DVD or CD writer (usually external USB DVD or CD writer), please follow the steps listed below to install ASPI on your system: I. If the program cannot recognize your DVD or CD writer and you are running DVD Photo Slideshow on Windows NT/2000/XP, please download WnAspi32.Dll from http://www.dvd-photo-slideshow.com/wnaspi32.dll and save it to the set up folder of DVD Burning Xpress(Normally it is at folder of C:\Program Files\ DVD Burning Xpress).

Click here to download the ASPI Driver version 4.71.
Run the downloaded file aspi_v471.exe on your system.
Select the folder where you want to extract the files to (c:\adaptec\aspi in this example) and press the Unzip button.
Unpack the aspi471.ZIP (it will appear after the previous step).
